11 Things Mila Kunis Has Said About Raising Kids

When Mila Kunis isn’t busy making relatable movies about mom life with pal Kristen Bell or raising money for refugees fleeing Ukraine, she spends her time parenting her two kids. The Bad Moms actress shares daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 7, and son Dimitri Portwood, 5, with husband Ashton Kutcher. She married The Ranch star on July 4, 2015, after meeting on the set of That 70s Show in the ‘90s and getting together in 2013. Although Kunis is very private — and doesn’t even have social media! — the Black Swan actress has opened up about raising kids throughout the years.

One of the challenges of being a celebrity parent? The way she is treated by the media. Tabloids have caused stress to her family, as Kunis detailed in a Cosmopolitan cover story in August 2018. “At one point when I was pregnant, [the tabloids] said that I had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital, and my face was on the cover,” she said. “The amount of stress that caused my family, nobody will understand. Although my dad is always very hopeful that the pregnancies are true. He’s always like, ‘Is there really another?'”

Women in general are criticized unfairly. Even before Kunis became a mom, she experienced the harmful treatment. “But, you know, people criticize a woman for everything — like, I get criticized for how my hair looks when I go grocery shopping or the fact that I don’t wear makeup when I get my nails done,” she told James Franco for an article in Interview Magazine in 2012. “Women get scrutinized all the time for the way they look. So if I can learn to deal with that, then I do believe I can learn to deal with people’s criticisms of my film choices.”

Because of this, she is selective about what she puts out in the world publicly, but we do know she is a great mom. Kutcher told Ellen DeGeneres in Dec. 2014, per Us Weekly, “The most amazing thing about having a baby is my partner, Mila. She’s the greatest mom, I can’t even. I go to work every day and I come home and she’s like perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing. And I know that something probably didn’t go amazing, but she never tells… it’s unbelievable. She’s incredible.”
